Wednesday morning MVB Bank officials received a certificate of appreciation from the Fraternal Order of Police.
MVB donated over $2,000 to the FOP to help purchase bullet proof vests for local police officers!
Mountaineer Lodge #78 of the FOP has been donating bullet proof vests to police agencies in Harrison County for at least three years. They try to give each agency at least one, so the donation from the bank helps out a lot. With the $2,400 from MVB that will purchase three vests for local officers, so they can get home safely after putting their life on the line.
"It relieves a burden from the government so they don't have to purchase the vest. Some officers in some agencies have to buy their own vest, so this relieves them from this added expense. Vests do save lives," said the Secretary for the FOP.
Since they've been doing this for years, officials said they will continue to do so because helping keep our law enforcement safe is a huge priority.
